Karnataka Government Expands Cabinet; Appoints 7 New Ministers

Karnataka CM B.S. Yediyurappa, in his third cabinet expansion, appointed seven new members on January 13. The newly appointed ministers include MLAs Umesh Katti, S Angara, Murugesh Nirani and Arvind Limbavali and MLCs R Shankar, M T B Nagaraj and C P Yogeshwar. However, several BJP legislators resented the cabinet expansion for overlooking seniority, sacrifice and fair regional representation and the appointment of non-popularly elected MLCs in the cabinet.
